- 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- salt to taste
- 6 cloves garlic, finely minced
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon caper brine
- 1 ½ teaspoons cold butter
- ⅓ cup chopped Italian flat leaf parsley, divided
- 1 ½ tablespoons cold butter
- water, as needed
- 1 Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat until it just begins to smoke. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.
- 2 Season shrimp with salt; cook and stir until shrimp begin to turn pink, about 1 minute.
